. new mexico, joseph. hello. caller: this is a perfect segue, the chart she was just showing. obviously new mexico, we have lost a whole industry and construction. which means, that is a lot of entry-level positions, especially coming out of high school. i see so many kids, 19, 20, 21 that are coming out of high school, they cannot even get a part-time job and they are homeless. if we had a construction industry, we had to switch service, instead of new home construction, to stay in business, we had to move into a grudge just to do our work in a storage unit. host: do you own your own home? guest: i do. my mortgage is very low. it is $60,000 or so. that is what i go on it. it started out at maybe $100,000. host: thank you. guest: that is very indicative of the situation. even the we see signs of a rebound in housing, the construction industry is still getting its foot back on the ground. you are seeing younger workers suffer any long-term consequences of what is happening in the economy. even if we do recover in terms of gdp and construction, there are consequences that will continue to
support an increase in the presence of the national guard at the u.s.-mexico border in light of this drug violence? >> this is a very complex issue and it takes cooperation between the united states and mexico. i know that you are aware that there was an agreement between the united states and mexico where we help with technical support for boats and aircraft, to help with the war on drugs and the cartels in mexico. this is something we continue to have to do. a pass so, if the people of texas to not know, look it up, pal passover -- el paso is one of the safest cities in america. this is a great community and a great economic engine for our state. >> i have already stated that we should triple the u.s. border patrol. we have to get serious. the question you raised is an important question. mexico is a great and mighty nation and it is tragic what is happening in mexico. i was visiting with a mexican businessman some time ago who described to me how he received from the drug lords a letter that detailed where every one of his grand kids had been for the past week, minute by minute. this i
with mexico and the civil war was a small club and so grant drank himself out of the army. no one would have thought anything of it except that when the civil war began grant vaulted over dozens of officers senior to himself who took delight in spreading stories of grant's drinking. i tracked accounts of grant's drinking to the extent that i could and discovered on two occasions during the civil war he got drunk to the extent that he got drunk and went to bed and slept off and look up the next morning. he never got drunk at a time when being drunk impaired his ability to perform his responsibilities. he got drunk once during the siege of vicksburg when nothing was happening. he never got drunk when he was president. this is a story that has stuck with him in part because it is a label. you can put on somebody and it is hard to disprove. the part about grand being a butcher is something that even occurred to some of grant's fans during the civil war, the civil war shocked american sensibilities win the war began. no one understood how big the conflict was going to become. how many people woul

to mexico. i am trying to understand what they are trying to do with that voucher. i think people should understand a voucher has a limited. if that limit of money runs out, especially old people, and young people should be thinking about it, because we are getting older, once that voucher runs out, people will start tasting a little bit of a third world thing. when you go to a doctor like in mexico or any other third world, doctors over there ask you first before they attend to you if you have insurance or money. if you don't have either, they will tell you to go back outside. that is very worrisome. to make another comment about the debt we have, people need to understand that started with republicans throughout the years before obama. no regulations on wall street. it's very worrisome. i think obama is doing the right thing trying to regulate especially on wall street, because wall street is a funding tunnel of getting money out of this country and not taxing the rich. host: money is in oklahoma, republican. good morning. caller: the man before me was just on the talking points of the

[laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's

million on tv ads in ohio through the beginning of october. >>> the killing of mexico's most feared criminal gang kingpin should be considered a major coup in the war on drugs. but it has now turned into a bit of an embarrassment. mexican special forces say they killed cartel leader, heriberto lazcano. in a vicious gun battle. then it fizzled as armed gunmen stormed a funeral home and snatched lazcano's remains from under the noses of authorities. >> how did he disappear? >> that is a wild story. >> that is fascinating. >> the nickname says it all, "the executioner." they actually had a $5 million bounty on his head. highest profile drug lord to be killed or captured, when mexican president calderon took office in 2006. they got one of the big fish here for sure. but the drug war in mexico is frightening and violent and doesn't even begin to scratch the surface there. >> unbelievable. apparently he was also one of mexico's most wanted men. and this isn't the first time a body has disappeared. the cartels are sort of known for doing that kind of thing. >> it is. scary. >>> speaking o

is your prescription? pardon the expression. >> i oversaw the or form of medicaid in the mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we ticket from a fee-for- service model to a managed-care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to the states, in this case, block grants that balance revenues and expenditures, and that is how we ever get out of this. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success and some horrible failure. failure of lincoln avoided, success will be emulated. that is how we will find our way out of this. host: gary johnson is with u

, should college be provided to everyone. >> first of all, as governor of new mexico, we established lottery scholarships which allowed really any graduating high school student from new mexico to go to college with those costs paid. so woths what's the federal role, though, when it comes to education, and what's the primary reason in this country why college division tuition is so high? well, it is because of guaranteed government student loans that because of guaranteed government student loans, no one has the excuse for not going to education. and so because of that, institutions of higher learning, colleges and universities are immune from pricing that if kids would take a harder look at it, gee, i don't think i can afford $15,000 a semester, i think i will just sit this one out. when that happens en masse, i guarantee you, the cost of college tuition will drop dramatically. today that doesn't exist. i can't afford $15,000, yet friends and family will point and say, look, you can get a guaranteed government student loan. that is another one of government's unintended consequences
, the only countries that are worse for mexico and chile. so what about germany? what happened is since 1985 the average salary of german workers has risen five times faster than in america. so if you can't afford to pay more and can't compete globally, how do all of the big companies do it? well, if the companies can make it the country as a whole can't make it may be as the economy as a whole. let me just tell you that in the last decade germany rated 2 trillion-dollar trade surplus against the competition from china, india, the asian tigers and the united states ran a 6 trillion-dollar trade deficit. so we are facing the same global competition that we were and they did $8 trillion better than we could and they were paying their workers more. how could that be? it doesn't make sense, does it? the next thing is we are told we can't compete on the old manufacturing basis. we've got to become a service economy. you've got to go out and learn knowledge shots. that's where the future is. i've got a couple of chapters on what happened to the knowledge economy in the last decade and my book. wha

to that energy. on the u.s. chamber of commerce list, the united states ranks 7th behind mexico, the u.k., norway, new zealand, denmark, australia, and ahead of canada, germany and many others including china and russia. while the u.s. has plenty of challenges on energy use and supply, the energy information administration says there's a significant reason for optimism. natural gas. >> as energy use is reduced on a per capita basis, vulnerability to shocks, i think, is reduced. this growth in shale gas and tight oil has made an unbelievable difference to energy security in the u.s. and this looks like a pattern that is set to continue. rich: the report says u.s. technology to secure and use natural gas coupled with energy efficiency could lead u.s. oil imports to drop significantly in the next decade. as for the candidates, romney says he wants to reverse obama administration policies on coal regulations, other energy regulations and increase drilling permits. president obama has pushed green energy and fuel standards saying one of the best ways to reduce oil imports is to use less of it. back to
